I need to remove my gas tank HELP!!!!!

Some dough head who borrowed my jeep was kind enough to fill my gas tank with diesel fuel!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I now need to drop and drain my tank, I have read a bit on how to do it. It does not seem to hard that scares me. Does anyone know where I can find some detailed instructions on how to drop a tank so I will not screw it up??
Thanking anyone in advance

Don't be scared, I just put a bigger fuel pump in mine, the whole process took about 1.5 hours. Or you could just siphen your tank dry, and cycle your key a few times to flush the fuel lines. It may smoke a bit for a while but what diesel is left will just mix with the gas.

Should probably ask this in the JK forum. It's going to be totally different on a TJ than on a JK.
